Ok so this looks like quiiiite the face fleet, however it includes morning, evening and mask routine so don’t panic • i started the day with a little baby peel courtesy of @deciem #theordinary #lacticacid 5% which i washed off within an hour using @larocheposay extremely gentle cleanser lotion. just wanted a little help with the glow - nothing excessive • from there, i did my usual: ha mixed with #niacinamide, followed up with @biodermafrance light moisturiser and @ultrasunuk • i didn’t wear makeup today, so tonight i cleansed lightly with @veneffect pore minimising cleanser before masking with @eve_lom #rescuemask on a couple of congested areas (cheeks, chin and one side of my forehead - weird) before rinsing with a muslin cloth and putting a light layer of @embryolisse hydra-masque on, leaving for a few minutes then rinsing, followed by a spritz of @caudalie #beautyelixir - i am obsessed with the smell of that mist • before i go to bed, i’ll do my usual pih-busting and anti-ageing routine using #alphaarbutin & #advancedretinoid from #deciem, followed by @glossier #balmdotcom & moisturiser happy saturday 😊 i made pumpkin pie so i’m feeling all autumnal 🍂🍁 . . . . . . #skincarediary #skincarecommunity #skincareroutine
Just wanted to share a few things the ingredient lists of which grabbed my attention at the local pharmacy (boots uk). it is definitely nice to see a handful of products with no blatantly obvious skin health compromising ingredients, such as high levels of volatile compounds (bar the last product in the selection) & fragrance. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ having said that, almost all of the ones in the selection are unreasonably priced, imo, with their rrp ranging from £12.00 to £27.99. gurl, hold my gin. 😒😒😒 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ comic relief: are #vichy kidding with this 10-ml l-aa serum priced at nearly £30.00?! 😂😂😂 #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity

I completely forgot i bought this candle, and now that i've found it, i'm scared to burn it because it's so incredible and never want it to end 😭 - apocalyptic from @officialbyredo - a strangely beautiful combination of fire iron, oakmoss and woodsy accords that make this candle so special. smell before buying - it's powerful in the best way possible. - sotd: byredo encens chembur - a bright and surprisingly vibrant incense and citrus mix. it has notes of ginger, nutmeg, labdanum and rasin which give it depth and complexity, while still being light and wearable. incense and citrus is not a mixture you would traditionally think works, but as always - byredo blends these to perfection. perfectly clean and a great transitional fragrance for those who are just exploring the world of incense and smokey scents. - phytoactive eye cream from @royalfernskincare is truly a re-discovered gem. my all time favorite eye cream is the chanel le lift, but this comes a very very close second. infused with the royal fern complex, which is anti-oxidant, anti inflammatory and stimulates the production of collagen. it's the perfect consistency to use day or night and a luxurious and nourishing consistency- can't live without it. a lot of you guys have been asking me about glossier you - i have not received it yet, but it will ship very soon and i will do an in depth review - including first impressions and how it wears for the first few days ... it may or may not be the first post on zee blog 😊 you can pre-order glossier you using the link in my bio & get 20% off your first purchase!

A long time eczema ingredient is colloidal oatmeal. colloidal oatmeal has been found to have avenanthramides (avena..wha?), which inhibit the inflammation pathway, limiting nf-kb and the release of proinflammatory cytokines. eczema also causes the acid mantle to be at a higher ph, and colloidal oatmeal serves as a ph buffer to counteract this effect. the graph above is from a study showing the resulting change in ph once colloidal oatmeal is applied. it's another reason why our acid mantle's happiness is something we can pay attention to. other comparable, skin friendly ingredients for eczema are panthenol (provitamin b5) and of course good ol' ceramide np. #decodethatil #eczema #inflammation #aging

@alkimiskin . . i have been using this gorgeous facial oil blend for about a month now. the product was created by @roadtoglow as an oil specifically designed to provide nourishment for acne prone skin, although all skin types could benefit from using this oil. . . 1. the packaging: oh be still my beating heart. i am incredibly ocd when it comes to proper packaging and this meets all of my criteria for perfection. the sensitive ingredients are shielded from degradation by the opaque glass and air tight packaging. by choosing a pump instead of a dropper #cinco is protected from air exposure at time of use. . . 2. the product: this is a blend of plant oils that are high in linoleic acid which is preferred for acne prone skin (this skin type is typically low in this type of fatty acid). on first application it feels heavier than a typical dry oil but readily absorbs into the skin. i have truly seen a difference in the reactivity of my skin since using this product. i use strong actives and this oil has strengthened my skin’s moisture barrier and added almost a protective factor to my skin. . . 3. ways to use: i find half a pump is plenty to cover my entire face at the end of my skin care routine at night. i either pat on the oil or i mix it with my moisturizer (such as @stratiaskin #liquidgold). i’ve also used this as a shower mask. i mix a half pump of cinco with my @cerave hydrating cleanser and leave on my face while i shower and rinsing at the end. . . 4. the scent: this formula has zero essential oils or added fragrance which is good because those ingredients are sensitizing to all skin types. i absolutely love the scent of this product. the smell mostly comes from the black cumin oil and it is earthy and delightful. it smells slightly of cumin but it is very light and doesn’t linger. really though, this product could smell like fermented onions and i would still use it because of that glow! . . 5. results: i have had zero breakouts from introducing this oil to my routine. in fact, i really credit this product with helping to clear up my skin’s congestion. my skin is hydrated, nourished, and less sensitive in general. #holygrail . . #skincareisselfcare
This mask will be stocked on shelf at @kohls in just 72 hours! don’t miss the amazing new products available there 10/24 courtesy of their partnership with @usacosmeticskoreanbeauty . ➰ w. lab sebum out black mask . ➰claims to purify, absorb sebum waste, and control excessive sebum secretion . ➰ingredients:willow bark extract, oregano, japanese cypress, fermented soybean, cinnamon bark, wintergreen, charcoal powder, volcanic ash . ➰thick, cotton black mask soaked in a thin, gel essence. mask has a good amount of essence with leftover in the pouch that i applied to exposed areas following application . ➰mask fit is slightly small, with slits around the jawline for adjustment. the size wasn’t bothersome besides the nose covering. considering my nose contains the most sebaceous filaments, i would prefer a longer covering and more snug fit in that area. mask contains fragrance with an earthy/herbal scent . ➰applied for 15 min. slight cooling effect, most likely due to the wintergreen leaf extract. face feels clean, but i didn’t notice much difference concerning sebum. honestly, i didn’t expect a sebaceous miracle and i think this mask would show more benefits if used 2x/week for at least 4 weeks. surprisingly, my face wasn’t dry or tight and felt smooth. essence takes a few min to dry and has a slight tacky finish, but nothing a rinse or moisturizer can’t cure. i’m extremely interested in checking out the rest of the sebum line! . 🌟🌟🌟🌟/🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 . i received this complementary product from @usacosmeticskoreanbeauty in exchange for an honest review. all opinions are my own and are not influenced in any way by the product manufacturer/distributor. i just want to send a huge thank you to @deleone_nicole & @usacosmeticskoreanbeauty for listening to my concerns and such a great job matching masks ☺️❤️ . . #kbeauty #koreanskincare #koreanbeauty #abcommunity #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblogger #beautyreview #skincare #skincarecommunity #skincareblogger #skincareregimen #skincareroutine #skincarereview #instablogger #instareview #productreview #clarifying #blackmask #beautystagram
October empties! . 🔰@skinceuticals vitamin c - rp; couldn’t walk away from a dermstore sale. it makes my skin bright and even toned. i have yet to see it in replicated with another product. i am 42 and have patience for very few things in my life. i don’t like wasting money and time experimenting with products that do not have a great track record or ingredients that don’t seem promising, so if i find a product that has tons of reviews from many different skin types, i need to try it! 👏 . 🔰@sukiskincare concentrated strengthening toner - wrp; love the smell and absorption. it contains ferment extracts from botanicals and is a great primer for other products to follow. i did replace this with niod’s sdsm for now because it was next to try on my list of antioxidant protection. . 🔰@timelesshaskin q10 serum - rp; love the sticky consistency until absorbed; nice for layering . 🔰@timelesshaskin c+e+ferulic acids serum - rp; love that it absorbs very nicely, no smell, lasted 6 month in the frig. it has nice antioxidant properties, but i did not see much brightening, day or night use. i did repurchase backups, but for the big impact, i am searching for other vitcs. for the price, i will have this around for my neck, chest and hands. . 🔰@drdennisgrossman spf50 - rp; doesn’t really do it for my dark spots, but it blends well (at least for my skin tone). i have to wait for my other layers to absorb, otherwise my spf will pill. . . . #skincareroutine #skincareaddict #skincare #skincarejunkie #skinstagram #beautydiary #skincarecommunity #skincarelover #skincaregoals #empties
Review: ive been testing this product from @yeouthskincare for abour 2 weeks now. this was my favorite item i tried out. i like to use my toners with a cotton pad. i found that 6 sprays was the perfect amount for me. this was very gentle and i was even able to use with when my skin went through a dry spell. i like to use this during the moring. i like a more intense toner at night. the only con i see to this product is that it is on the smaller side compared to my other toners. it has 3.4 oz or 100ml. it has little to no scent. this is $15 and you can get a discount using my code a4aia003. i do recommend this product and would repurchase it when i run out. #yeouthskincare #yeouth #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #skincare #toner #beauty #beautycommunity

#pmroutine s a t u r d a y 10.21 . . . • 1st cleanse with #jss after show balm cleanser (❤️❤️) removed with the microfiber cloths he sells (they are so soft and i love them). • 2nd cleanse #lrp toleraine gentle cleanser (not pictured). • exfoliate with #exuviance performance peel ap25. this is my first time using these. it’s two steps. activator pad (smells like an old tire 🤢) which includes glycolic and mandelic acids, and gluconolactone (🤷♀️). i swiped the pad on my face—only a faint tingle and dissipated quickly. left on for 10 mins. then swiped on the neutralizer pad—faint pleasant scent. they said to rinse face with water, so did that too (so annoying because i do not have an instagram worthy sink to splash my face in 😑). no redness or burning. • moisturize with two pumps #stratia liquid gold. i’m going to try to do this routine twice a week for 6 weeks and see how it goes. trying to smooth out some texture on my forehead 👹👹 . . . #saturday #saturdaynight #skincare #skincareroutine #jordansamuelskin #stratia #stratiaskin #larocheposay #exfoliate #moisturizer #mandelicacid #glycolicacid #instaskin #instaskincare #skincarecommunity #skincareaddict

Friday nights face mask. i always struggle with how much water to put in these. i could of probably use more water. this was a reslly messy mask if it doesnt come off im solid parts and kind of crumbles. it felt pretty heavy and almost like a cast for my face. i had it on for 20 minutes. it was $3 from tj maxx. i didnt see any results and i would not repurchase. #facemask #beauty #beautycommunity #skincare #skincarecommunity #vitaminc #hydrating #moisturizing #skincareaddict #skincarejunkie

Sunscreen then & sunscreen now 🌤 👈 #badger sport broad spectrum zinc oxide sunscreen cream 👉 @makeprem blue ray sun gel i thought i'd do a blog post about the badger sunscreen, but i can actually do it quickly right here! 👉 i only bought the sport version of it because my local health foods store didn't have the regular one (beige tube) and i didn't think anything bad of it. so, important to remember that i, a homebody and who only went out for work, bought the sports version, meant for sticking to your face and body during major activity, like surfing. 1 year of use, 5 days a week ✔ i never got a tan. when i had this sunscreen on, the sun and i didn't even know each other. we were like strangers. when i went out, we were both like, new entity, who dis? 🤔 #ignored #blocked notes 1⃣ although unscented, there was still a scent which wouldn't have been a problem if the texture wasn't so thick. it was overwhelming. it doesn't smell like traditional sunscreen but it does smell like sunscreen, 2⃣ because it was so thick, it never sunk in for the amount of time that i allowed it to before applying makeup and running out the door, 3⃣ i was even oilier, 4⃣ i could feel how thick and heavy it was on my skin throughout the day, 5⃣ so hard to spread. imagine spreading cold cream cheese across bread that hadn't been warmed up or toasted beforehand, and 6⃣ the white cast game was strong, really strong 👻💪💪💪💪💪💪 yes, i never finished this sunscreen! just couldn't stand it for my intended purpose. i'm sure it'd work great for those who are super active 🏀⚽⚾🏈🎾 i most likely won't be purchasing badger sunscreens anymore. they're all creams which are way too heavy for my skin type and liking. i just like how clean they are! ever tried badger sunscreens? what was your experience like? . . . . . #skincare #sunscreen #sunscreens #skincarereview #makeprem #badgersunscreen #skincareaddict #skincareobsessed #suncare #sunprotection #skincarejunkie #skincarecommunity #beautycommunity #sunscreenreview #cleansunscreen #cleanskincare #igskincare #instaskincare #beautyblogger #bblogger #amroutine #naturalskincare #skincarediary #skincaredaily #organic #organicsunscreen
